Meeku Mathrame Cheptha Movie Review

The director not only concentrated on the entertainment factor but also gave an interesting storyline for the film. The way he has narrated the script is not really entertaining. The characters are designed strongly, which is definitely a plus point for this film. The movie starts off on an interesting note but then it comes down to boring. The entire first half will have some routine comedy dialogues and it gives boredom to the audiences.

The concept of the film is quite novel and it clearly justifies the current generation’s misuse of technology. The way it has been set in the comic background looks good and makes a good script

There are few drawbacks of the film is that it does not have that pace which is needed. The lead actor is in tension and is looking to change something which can spoil his life. Such situations should be showcased in a gripping manner with a taut screenplay. But that is missing in the film.

The twists showcased are also very predictable. The climax has also been wrapped up in a hurry and this gives the film a dull ending.

Meeku Mathrame Cheptha Movie Performances

Tarun Bhascker is an effortless actor who can play any type of character without much fuss. After putting up a decent show in Falaknuma Das, he carries MMC on his shoulders with his likable performance and impressive comedy timing. He gets ample support from Abhinav, who is also a natural actor. They are ably aided by the supporting cast played by Anasuya, Vinay Varma and Vani Bhojan.

Sivakumar’s music is alright when heard as a standalone audio. Something different has been attempted, and the lyrics are fun. But, in the movie, it doesn’t leave any impact. The background score is decent in parts. The cinematography by Mathan Gunadeva is a below par. It gives the movie a short film vibe. The editing by Sreejith Sarang is okay. The production lacks a slick quality that is essential for these flicks.

How Is Tharun Bhascker’s Performance?

Meeku Mathrame Chepta is not the acting debut of director Tharun Bhascker. He did a supporting role earlier in the year in the movie Falaknuma Das. He looked confident in that film. But, doing a small-time part, and a full-time lead are two different kettles of fishes all together. Debut director Shammeer Sultan has previously assisted Tharun Bhascker in his directorial attempt. It probably gives him a better understanding of what the strengths of Tharun Bhascker’s are, and an entire narrative is built around that personality. Meeku Mathrame Cheptha relies on body language a lot to generate the comedy. The punches flow casually from seemingly natural but out of control circumstances. Tharun Bhascker is unable to get the balance in energy right in meeting those requirements. He ends up trying too hard many a time. Full marks to the effort, but the ‘effort’ is visible. It is like a dancer who goes through complicated moves and completes it with a lot of sweat, and it shows. The effortlessness is missing that is so essential for the part.

Direction by Shammeer Sultan?

Shammeer Sultan making his debut has picked a narrative style that is similar to director Tharun Bhascker. Only here the subject is much weaker and relies heavily on the writing and chemistry of the lead actors to pull it off. Sadly, Shammeer Sultan is not able to do the needed with the narrative as the core content of the whole enterprise, the comedy fails to work. The new-age comedy relying heavily on the two leads, Tharun Bhascker and Abhinav Gomatam get repetitive and mechanical very soon. Every scene is conceived to generate comedy and that whole narrative hinges on it to work. Films like these are very hard to pull off. When one watches Meeku Mathrame Cheptha, it is easy to guess why? The whole narrative involving the writer/actor dynamic has to be in sync from start to end.

The screenplay will start to drag the moment there is a mismatch. Still, for the attempt, the first half of Meeku Mathrame Cheptha comes across as a watchable attempt. Yes, there are only a few laughs, but there is a consistency in narrative and overall proceedings. The second half follows the same pattern, and it gets boring as there is nothing new in the offering. The narrative gets worn out. It is when a few twists are thrown in, and they feel needless entirely. While one of them is fine, the other feels far removed from the rest of the movie. It brings down whatever effort that has been put before.

Overall, Meeku Mathrame Cheptha is based on a small idea that is ideal for either a short or one hour feature. Its core idea is relatable, and a black comedy without overstretching it could have worked well, digitally. But for a big-screen outing, Meeku Mathrame Cheptha is long and overstays its welcome. Watch it only if you have an appetite for comedy and nothing else matters. Otherwise, wait for the streaming.

Vani Bhojan and Others?

Vani Bhojan making her debut with the movie lacks screen presence. Her character is also poorly etched and irritating, which makes it is a disastrous outing for a newcomer. Abhinav Gomatam is like a parallel lead in the film. He is alright in a few sequences, and it is his ‘bromance’ with Tharun Bhascker that is the mainstay of the narrative. Anasuya Bharadwaj has a brief role. She does her part well. Unfortunately, it is not in correlation with the rest of the proceedings. It makes her part and sequences stick out. The movie is filed with most new artists throughout. But, none has a decently written role in standing out in the crowd. They are come and go with zero impact. The rest of the actors belonging to the workplace, family, and others have a minimal scope. They are given a scene or two at best to make an impression but have nothing to follow up. It is another aspect where the series fails in providing a satisfying experience.

Music and Other Departments?

Sivakumar’s music is alright when heard as a standalone audio. Something different has been attempted, and the lyrics are fun. But, in the movie, it doesn’t leave any impact. The background score is decent in parts. The cinematography by Mathan Gunadeva is a below par. It gives the movie a short film vibe. The editing by Sreejith Sarang is okay. The production lacks a slick quality that is essential for these flicks.

BIGIL MOVIE REVIEW

Verdict

Overall, the film goes on a lighter note which is a fun ride. People who want a few laughs would get satisfied fully but one who expects more may get disappointed. The contemporary storyline may be liked by the young generation for sure. An effortless effort looks to be paid off.
